As you might notice I have Deleted all of the default Favorites folders except the Favorites bar which I use.

it looks very neat lol But mine are a bit messy I seem to have 100s
Cant send you a screenshot as when I click on snipping tool I lose the opened window

I have folders both in IE favorites and now Bookmarks that are related to the same things

I only keep chrome to organise my android tablet bookmarks

I think I know what your seeing,
Inside my bookmarks folder are allot of other folders=like when you give a bookmark in chrome a different name than the url link shows which is normal or it did the same thing to me/ not sure why but I live with it
Yes the snipping tool is impossible to use on popup boxes like this,
I use keyboard shortcuts to take screen shots like this,
On my machine holding down the Shift key and pressing the PrtScen key takes a screen shot,
But I have to open Microsoft Paint and click on the Paste button so the screen shot appears from the windows clipboard,
Then I can rectangle select a portion of the image and crop it then save as jpeg and name it. upload it where ever I need to,
Keyboard shortcuts can vary,
On a laptop with the FN key you would hold it down and use a similar key PrtScen which this one might be slightly different,
But opening Paint would still be required to paste in to see the file.
Paint is located the same place as the snipping tool/ Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder.
Cheers.

Thanks for the tips
Got another problem now though lol
When imported into ie10 my chrome bookmarks were just all on one folder called bookmarks.
I have the links toolbar enabled in IE. With just a few links in it for mail etc
But today I noticed all the chrome bookmarks are in it also! As well as still being in the bookmarks folder in IE favorites

That is weird must of been a prior import showing up ?
Not much I can suggest beside deleting them from I'm guessing the Favorites bar ?
